Mariusz Grochowski – Champion’s Training.

There are many fighters on the Polish scene, who have been the top of the top, from the very beginning of armwrestling in Poland. One of them is definitely Mariusz Grochowski from Sosnowiec.

He began his adventure with armwrestling in 2002. Since then he managed to achieve a lot. He’s a Champion of Poland, Polish Cup winner, international gold medalist in Hungary, Lithuania, England and more. He also won Polish Armwrestling League 2006 and Arnold Classic 2014.

He is a coach in MCKiS TYTAN Jaworzno club, having trained many accomplished athletes. He’s also a contestant and referee in Polish Armwrestling Federation.

What to do and how to train to become as good as him? We asked the Champ to show us some secrets of his training.

For warmup Mariusz uses weights with which he is able to do 4 sets of 15 reps. Only then does he increase weights, while lowering reps. In the end phases, with biceps for example, Mariusz starts from straight angle with weights he cannot lift for holds. He says: “It’s not only about lifting that maximum weight, but also about even trying to lift it. We often have a psychological block, it’s not our muscle that stops us. Our minds sometimes tell us we have no more strength to train. Ask yourselves then – REALLY?”.

Success is not only gym workouts, but also psychological attitude, proper nutrition, time for regeneration (8 hours sleep), etc. Mateusz’s training motto is “The least favorite exercises are our best weapon against our opponents”.

Mariusz’s exercises are focused on biceps mostly, because as he says, “These muscles play the biggest part in my techniques. Of course I also focus on other groups, like chest, back, wrists, etc.”

At the end of each workout Mariusz wrestles at the table until complete muscle fatigue.
